Calcium Deficiency Symptoms, Causes, Risk Factors, and More

What to know about calcium deficiency?

You have more calcium in your body than any other mineral, and 99% of it is stored in your bones and teeth. This means consuming enough calcium is critical for keeping your bones and teeth strong, especially as you age. Calcium is also important for your nerves, heart, and muscle function. The current recommended daily allowance (RDA) for women and men is 1,000 mg to 1,300 mg, depending on your age.

By staying within these limits, you’ll be on your way toward maintaining healthy bones and teeth and warding off osteoporosis. But if you don’t drink milk or eat dairy products, could you be at risk for a calcium deficiency?
